romney said something similar a few days ago. let's talk about how the purpose of this war is being purposefully misremembered. we're being told now today all these reasons to feel good about the war. is it accurate to say that donald trump may have been the only republican to tell the truth what he said this was supposed to be a war for oil. >> he was accurate in part. there were a lot of reasons. those two quotes appeal compared to the things dick cheney had to sayness documentary running right now which absolutely curdled my blood. oil was a part of it, but there were many other parts. as you go through each one of the players you find each one had their own special reason for getting us into this nightmare. >> i wouldn't say i would condemn every politician who supported this, but in the case of cheney, bush, mitt romney and rush limbaugh, people who avoided military service in vietnam and then supported this war, do they get a special place in satan's party room? >> yeah, i would think so, but cognitive distance is par for the course for the republican party. it didn't surprise
successful and mitt romney was elected they would have gotten their way. neil: but, it is they might get their way wit president behind them. but declines numbers, might make it difficult even with the president. >> no question, righto work, and end of collective bargaining is bad for unions and workers. you have republican governors, like chris christie, who is supportive of private sector unions and collective bargaining, it is not the end of the world, but,hey will support a man who standing by their agenda, that is the way it works in washinnton. it works other way. so, you know, unions -- >> i don't know that they would have needed to getting any. a lot of folks watching this, say, i see they are in trouble in washington having a heck of a time since last year in wisconsin, losing out on some big state cutbacks even in california and what is going on across pretty were the southeast. so, they beg to feel like custer? >> i think for most part, you have to think about president obama's second term agenda, which you know, parts of it may affect the unions, but he is focused on gun cont
of the three million white guys that didn't vote for romney. i'm one of the people that are being driven away. first of all, i just think it's interesting, talking about the challenges of asians and hispanic communities, well, how come we don't talk about the challenges that germans face or italians or polish? because those groups assimilated. i don't know how many times i have to keep saying this, it just goes in one ear and out the other -- host: you think republicans are having trouble reaching out to those groups as well? >> caller: no, i used to believe in assimilation. we used to believe in moratoriums on migration, which was best for the whole country is unity. it's not diversity. it's encouraging groups to reject the idea of ethnic voting blocs and ethnic grievance. we don't believe in that. now, the republicans, country club republicans leadership wants to become democrats. they want to bow to the concept of the permanent ascendancy of multilingualism, the permanent ascendancy of group identity, and it's not going to work. and for every person they might reach out to, if they want to
-ended the republican primary might even have produced a different nominee. as mitt romney struggled in the weeks leading up to the michigan primary, newt gingrich and rick santorum nearly agreed to form a joint unity ticket to consolidate conservative support and topple romney. we were close, former representative bob walker, a grich ally says. grich a gingrich and an toreum couldn't agree. in the end gingrich told me too hard to negotiate. so much going on there! where do i start? >> like i said this is one of the great untold stories. >> that is hilarious. >> how would that have worked? i'm curious. >> it didn't! >> i'm asking this question seriously because -- >> that is the point. >> because back in 2008, the reason why mike huckabee got beaten by john mccain is because fred thompson and john mccain struck this same deal and made the difference in south carolina. how is this going to work? >> first important to situate ourselves to february when this happened in the gop primary. romney was really struggling and clear he had a tough time winning his home state. there was emerging anybody but
're saying. you would rather deal with ahmadinejad than me. >>absolutely. >> and so would mitt romney. (vo) she's joy behar. >>and the best part is that current will let me say anything. what the hell were they thinking? ♪ >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation, on your radio, and on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: the republican party says we need a shakeup. yeah, they need more than a shakeup. they need a whole new plan a whole new message, a whole new set of policies. what do you say, good morning, everybody. great to see you this morning. it is tuesday. here we go. tuesday march 19th. hope you are ready to travel with us for the next three hours across the political landscape here in our nation's capitol around the country and ash the globe c and we'll take a quick stop at all of the highlights of the day. we'll talk about them, and we will take your calls, take your comments, your calls of course at 866-55-press. that's the toll free number. your comments on twitter at @bpshow and your comments on facebook at facebook/billpressshow. big
against that, and again, we had an election in november 2012. right? one of the issues was mitt romney with paul ryan has his running mate said we are going to privatize medicare turn into it a voucher system. the american people by a margin of almost 5 million people said we don't want that. third thing wrong is it repeals the affordable care act. it repeals obamacare, which has already kicked in. which has been there now two years, which the american people like, which is working, which even republican governors now have been buying into seven, i believe it is latest republican governors who have accepted the expansion of medicaid under obamacare. kids can stay on their parent's health insurance until they are 26. insurance companies can no longer deny kids coverage because they have a preexisting condition. by next year insurance companies won't be able to deny anybody coverage because they have a preexisting condition. that kicks in. and also these insurance exchanges making it possible for small businesses to ban together have been set up now in most states e
of massage the message. example, if you talk to naacp like mitt romney did in 2012, you don't do this. >> i'll eliminate every nonessential expensive program i can find and that includes obama care and i'm going to work to -- >> joining me now, democratic strategist robert zimmerman and cnn contributor anna nevaro. thank you for being with us. i want to go back to that event at naacp in 2012. >> why, carol? >> i was intrigued with the new massaging of the message. i thought we were friends. >> i'm sorry. i have to ask you this. how could mitt romney have better put that and make the audience a little more receptive to what he had to say? >> carol, mitt romney who? look, he's yesterday's news. he's not the candidate anymore. he himself has acknowledged there were a bunch of mistakes made by his campaign. he's not the one setting policy. he's not the one setting the tone for the republican party now. i think what we should talk about is what the rnc did today. they appointed some very no nonsense pragmatic people including our colleague ari fleischer from cnn and also sally bradshaw among the
worked for several republican governors including mitt romney when he was governor of massachusetts. >> reporter: a date for her confirmation hearing has yet to be set but probably, bill, in the next few weeks. bill: thank you, doug mckelway, more on those e-mails. >> well the family of a jailed american pastor in iran is now demanding that the obama administration issue a statement calling for the release of saeed abedini. attorneys for the abedinies at at hearing on friday accuse the u.s. state department being quote, awol on this subject for the last few months. listen to some of this. >> i think the state department's refusal to appear before this committee today is extremely troubling and frankly offensive. the failure to appear today to testify frankly is inexcusable. we've had some dialogue with the state department over the last several months. i will be honest, mr. chairman it has not been pleasant. the lack of concern, the lack of engagement has been problematic in our work to free pastor saeed abedini. saeed abedini is a united states citizen. he is us and our government
going to happen? do you see seiu endorsing mitt romney? >> not mitt romney. he's history. but the fact of the matter is, if the republican party wants to broaden itself out, going forward, they will choose canned -- candidates and issues that attract labor -- >> we have the very best! we have the very best issues about labor, we want to lower the taxes on working people and more liberty for working people. we want to protect america's borders and from terrorism for working people -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that has nothing to do with what we are talking about. >> we are not talking about the borders. you are conflating a burch of stuff that has nothing to do with unions itch the idea that working people is union membership is a fraud. working people need job creation. and conservative approximatelies will bring t. liberal policies will crush it -- [overlapping dialogue] >> that's proven to be untrue. >> shannon: gentlemen. we talked about the numbers. neap 1953, it is peak for union membership here. 26% of the labor force. now it's 11.3. if the unions are vital and so powerful, why t
have commodity, you put the poll up and think back to november 6, obama against romney in florida and romney a terrible candidate, and he got, he lost by less than two points in florida. here she is, winning by 11 points over jeb bush, much more popular in florida than romney has ever been so that tells us it is very much pro hillary clinton and antirepublican and a little antibush but the republicans, the brand, we use the guy's name in the first section, the executive director of the pew poll which is a respected poll, said that the g.o.p. brand is on the verge of being marginalized. if that happens, how do you recover? i don't know. >> if that happens and they cannot do this we will get another party in the country because the democrats are unpopular too. there is a 70's percent, we all talked about this, antiwashington, antipolitical party. someone will fill the void. if the republicans don't do it someone will. >> hillary clinton has to stay as far outside the mainstream of washington, dc, infighting, as possible so resign when slow did was a well timed act, and pat is right:
which does not allow in his opinion for any form of gun control whatsoever. he makes mitt romney look looks michael due dukakis. >> i paint in primary colors. >> these are details. >> they are details i would just as soon ignore. on some of those fronts. but, again, overall, the primary message that he delivers is less government at home and restraint abroad which you know what? the republican party has been reckless over the past decade. we have paid a lot for it with our philosophy. and so i think he's a good symbol like his father. listen. i voted for his father in the republican primary in 2012. did i agree with what he said about 9/11? >> god, i hope not. >> absolutely not. there are a lot of things that rand paul said i think are way out there and i disagree with, but the core issue of small government at home and restrained foreign policy abroad, i will -- >> not a realistic setting. >> people for symbolic purposes. >> joe doesn't like paper money either. he wants to get rid of the dollar bill. >> we are into a bartering system at the scarborough house. >> you got a problem say
romney of certain things from the senate floor. harry reid has to be called responsible for the statements that he made. as i say it, he needs to go over to the marine barracks before formation of marines, standing with the commandant and give an apology and not just have some spokes people from his office do it. that's cowardly. >>alisyn: harry reid did not say it was because of the sequester. what he did on the floor was he linked the two. he didn't say it was because of the sequester that this terrible tragedy happened. he was talking about the tragedy and then he just segued in his own head and verbally to talking about the sequester and about how we have to be careful. harry reid does this a lot, by the way. his spokes people are forever apologizing about the clumsiness. >>steve: his people tried to walk it back and they suggested the same thing you have. but when you listen to it where there are these dead marines and the sequester, he clearly has linked it. whether he wanted to or not, he linked it and it's wrong. not only should he apologize to the marines, he sh
to the very wealthy. it's like the romney plan on steroids. >> you would dispute that. "the wall street journal," though, congressman, wrote thing something on friday that caught my attention. the headline, conservatives warn lawmakers against tax deals. conservative activists and organizations have begun warning republican logtss if they agree to raise taxes in a broad budget deal with the president, they should expect to face challenges from the party's right wing in the next primary elections. i've tried to ask this week after week. any ratio of spending cuts to tax increases that any republican is prepared to support? >> every viewer that's watching today that's working already got a tax increase. the president took $600 billion out of this economy. he talks about a balanced plan but he never talked about cutting. >> but you extended 99% of the bush tax cuts, your own leader said that was a pretty good deal. >> he raised $600 billion worth of taxes. he took from the economy, and he never made any cuts. look, the president has a different belief than we do. he believes deficits don't
hearing from mitt romney about self-departation? >> hey, thomas, it's good to be with you. if you think about it president reagan and president bush, 43, are the last two american presidents who pushed comprehensive immigration reform. so, you know, immigration reform is -- has to deal with economic opportunity and growth. and that is very consistent with republican economic policies. so it's something that where i disagreed with governor romney's position on that. but we've got to move forward. and certainly as a committee, we did call on the republicans in congress to come up with a solution that's comprehensive, dealing with immigration reform. we're not trying to say, look, we want to tell republicans in congress what exactly needs to be in the legislation. but we have got to deal with this issue. >> one thing, henry, from the rnc report about that exact issue saying young voter, increasingly rolling their eyes with what the party believes. when someone rolls their eyes at us, they're not likely to open their ears to us. that's again to younger voters. another thing important to you
has a better chance of win hog may not be as pure on a conservative. >> that's what the romney situation was all about. and romney failed. >> very bold in that. >> they are. but they are congenitally unhappy. i have been covering this stuff for decades now. there are people in the republican party and in the conservative movement who are seldom happy except with certain candidates. if those candidates get nominated and have to go on and make the compromisees that politicians make. they end up enhappy with them as well. this is just part of the landscape. >> as history shows the two most extreme candidates in recent times were barry goldwater and george mcgovern and both got hammered. so i think you are right. just real quickly on the ted cruze barack obama front. isn't it interesting that both of their stories revolve around, you know, a rags to riches in america the greatest nation on earth but they both see this country so differently? think really do. don't they. look at the line of work that president obama went into. you know, it was a law professor and a community organiz
: well, the last time i was in israel, where you see that windmill over my shoulder, mitt romney was giving a speech. and during that trip, it was netanyahu who seemed to align himself with the president of israel. now these two leaders is trying to show the closeness of the relationship. to say all that friction was in the past, we got along so well, such that there was one moment that stood out. the drama of the morning, perhaps, was during that red carpet welcoming ceremony. the two of them walking side by side at the tarmac at the international airport in tel aviv. you saw the president take his jacket off and throw it over his shoulder. netanyahu awkwardly thought to himself, what do i do here? do i take it off? do i not. and he did the same as if to show not only were they so comfortable together, they could take their jackets off, the same shirts and blue ties. it was a moment that was really made for the public in this country that has viewed this as being a wide gap between the two leaders. but the primary topic in the conversation for the two later today behind closed d
million-vote margin between mitt romney and president obama. there's also some reference to the policy there. but it's unclear exactly what that would mean or where it would go. look, this just falls within the narrative of everything we're seeing in this country. as more and more republicans, more and more democrats and the american public evolves and has evolved quite quickly on this issue. and it's time quite frankly for our elected leaders in washington to catch up with the rest of the country. >> rock on, human rights campaign president, chad griffin, thanks for coming on the show. >> pleasure to be here, thank you, alex. >>> hash tag now is the time, it could be mantra for middle east peace. we will ask the new republican's ben birnbaum about the fierce urgency of a two-state solution when he joins us live from tel aviv, just ahead. hey, our salads.

today in business week. it says mitt romney struggled in the early primaries last year, newt gingrich and rick santorum nearly agreed to form a joint unity ticket to consolidate conservative support and topple romney. but the report says the negotiations collapsed because gingrich and santorum could not agree on who would be president. business week quotes gingrich as saying, in the end it was too hard to negotiate. >>> meanwhile at an elementary school yesterday, a politically savvy young student put new jersey governor chris christy on the spot. >> i'm a third grader at the elementary school. you've done a great job here in new jersey and i was wondering if you were thinking about running for president. >> do you work for msnbc? i'm not thinking about running for president right now because i've got a job to do here. and i've got an obligation to all these folks. you can't worry about fourth grade until you finish third gras grade and i can't worry about that until i do this job. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little trouble a long way from home... as an a
candidate for a candid camera world. mitt romney had a lot of problems just being videoed, being himself. it was worse than the other problems he had which was not being himself. neither worked out very well. and chris christie does this thing, when he talks off the cuff. to kids or teachers or yelling at reporters, people love it. if you look on youtube at the viral videos, and he has created several. eight of the top ten are him being spontaneous. you can see, he says it is reprehensible. this is the crap i have to hear. >> how my uncle talk. >> what the hell are we paying you for? get the hell off the beach. i don't think it is a great way for a governor to address his constituents and i think he has used an outsized personality to actually distract from a very anti-worker platform so there are a lot of problem with chris christie. if we're optics, youtube, campaigning for a republican party that doesn't look good when it says what it thinks, he is better than most. >> he has pretty good approval ratings. >> rand is the intellectual side of the party which has a lot of truth to it but

romney's former vice president's running mate, congressman paul ryan. but first, senator rand paul of kentucky who recently complained the gop is becoming in his words stale and moss covered, criticism many believed is aimed at senator john mccain. >> i want you to clarify, there has been a rift between you and him. you suggested the other day that some of the senators and everyone assumed you were referring to senator mccain when you said the gop of old has grown stale and moss covered. you didn't want to say who you were referring to, but you said everybody knows who you were referring to. were you referring to senator mccain? >> i would say figurative sort of sentence in the sense that it isn't to be taken literally. it was also meant for humor. and i think it garnered a little humor, but it is to say we as a gop need to embrace new ideas and grow our party in a way that some haven't. but i didn't intend it to be directed at one person. >> but he was one of those persons that you were referring to? >> it is a figurative, illusion, it is not meant to be taken for one person. he a
romney went shopping for some stores in midtown. it's great to be here this evening in the vast magnificent hilton ballroom, or what mitt romney would call a little fixer-upp fixer-upper. >> you got to admit, no matter what side of the line you sit on, those are pretty funny. those are more than just funny lines. my guest wrote an op-ed for cnn.com on obama's "weaponized wit." obama didn't invent the political jab, but the president has taken the art form to a whole other level to take on rivals. dean's live for us in new york. dean, what is it? why do you think obama's become such a good
forward-looking agenda for america. he made a mitt romney with a wife that's equestrian -- let's not kid ourself. we have two robust parties. each have their own problems. we're likely to see a competitive political environment for decades to come. as for rand paul, good comment. republicans need to help resolve the issue of immigration reform, in order to get this issue behind us. i think it's interesting. mitt romney got 27% of the latino vote. in the battleground states with exit polling he got 32%. in the battleground of battlegrounds, ohio, he got 42% of latino votes. maybe that's a small sampling. nonetheless, the fact of the matter is, the more he was able to make these arguments about the economy and deficit and debt and the affordable care act -- >> but doesn't the republican party have to pass immigration reform, seem to passing it to avoid having the appearance that they're not welcoming? >> the republicans have to play a role, absolutely. my former white house deputy has taken the leadership of the effort in california to help recruit and elect hispanic republicans at the loc
about them. so, for instance, mitt romney had this very big focus on the economy, but for the average american, it was tough to see how mitt romney's economic policies would make their lives any better off. i think that's the challenge republicans want to face if they want to be competitive. >> tim, some people would say americans for prosperity is part of the problem. >> not me. . who would say that? >> some people would say that requiring a strict orthodoxy when it comes to no tax increases, that's part of the problem. what's your response? >> in fact, a vibrant, growing, strong movement is a recipe for a party's success, and that movement is outside the party. the democratic party is not that strong. it was the obama campaign, it was george sorros in 2002, 2004. a lot of movement groups on the left that dragged the democrat party along with their energy, with the movement's energy. so i think a strong movement is a good thing. frankly, a not-so-strong party is a good thing. the democrat party is not that strong. it's about the movement, pulling them along. i think that's what we ha
, how to tackle women's issues in a way that doesn't repel women, as mitt romney did in november. >> lots of work ahead. thanks very much, brianna for that report. the report, by the way, repaired by the republican national committee, is remarkably blunt in discussing the party's problems. the rnc chairman is blunt, as well. reince priebus is joining us now live from party headquarters. reince, thanks very much for coming in. >> hey, wolf. thanks for having me. i told you it was going to be big and bold, and i know a lot of people didn't expect it this way. but that's what we delivered this morning. >> certainly did. in fact, i have a copy of it right here, and it's a lot of pages. and the type is pretty small. the font, we should say. let's talk a little bit about what the big problem -- is it a problem of messaging? is it a problem of organization? or is there a substantive policy issue that you have to change? >> well, i think that, you know, here's where i kind of focus in as chairman of the party, and it makes sense. this is where i would first go. and i just think that we h

the elections i think netanyahu thought he was in charge and he was rooting for mitt romney, lots of talk about potential attack on iran. the president has since won convincingly, netanyahu has lost some ground at home. i thought reading the pool reports that come back, netanyahu was complaining about all of the challenges he's facing putting together his new government and obama basically said, well, talk to me about it. look what my problems on capitol hill are, and netanyahu said, yeah, but we have more moving parts over here, parts in our country don't move at all, that's the problem. >> i had my doubts about whether or not he was going to shift netanyahu's opinion on him. i felt that from the -- remember that photototof netanyahu and obama sitting on the couch in the white house? >> the oval office. >> do you remember that? >> sure. being lectured. >> the whole body posture and so forth. but some of the video emerging from this trip is so authentic and even the words of netanyahu describing obama and what he means, what obama means to him in this relationship. a true friend. it was very au

a rick perry in texas and ideally maybe even a governor romney in massachusetts. they deal across the aisle. they deal with practical issues. they can help the party sort of see where the country is going and move ahead in a practical matter and take credit for it if the party is smart enough to take advantage of that. >> eroll, you're making the point. practicality, bipartisan thinking, nonideological thinking is the reason people elect republican governors so easily. they don't have to make a big ideological choice. there you have republican governor kasich, who, again, i say i like, giving a nonideological answer. i haven't thought much about it but, yeah, civil union sounds fine to me. it's a reasonable answer for a guy who hasn't given much thought to something. thank you. >>> up next, chris christie meets the press, the third grade press. literally. this is "hardball," the place for politics.

the terrorists acting out. romney didn't feel that situation that well with his press conference he called it at the wrong time about the guy that runs the entire foreign policy apparatus in the united states. it really does seem he used to say that a reporter is someone else that will sell his soul for a good story but it took turns out when the story might make barack obama look bad or make his presidency looks like a failure they are going to miss stories by definition simply for the inability to see the failure to be interested .... on the editorial page recovered the way that i wanted to be covered if i have anyone to blame but myself. we are part of who we are as the washington examiner but we also there is no reason that we should be the only ones to be ill-defined obvious trends in the labor statistics that we were practically the ones to write about people seem unaware of of the economy. 25 to
, that mitt romney's comments about the 47%. this report says the very same thing t at the time, we talked about how the romney campaign didn't have troops on the ground didn't have any really good database. this report says the same thing. the key is and tell me your take on this. 866-55-press. will the party change? will it recognize what went wrong? and will it change? i don't think so. let me give you three quick examples. the report says would havee have to increase our outreach to mine or at this. the day after the the report president obama nominates tom perez for labor secretary and rush limbaugh and says this is as bad as hugo chavez and another because he supports immigration reform. another example, the report says, again, we have to reach out to more young voters. the day after the report came out, reinye brebius said the party is one man and one woman. we are against same-sex marriage. 81% of young people support marriage equality. >> if there is any issue that it shows the generational gap, it's marriage equality. >> bill: another one, the repo
romney's campaign with attack ads. republicans had group of their own but were not competitive against the democrats' more sophisticated technology and approach. america rising mission is not to end the less advantage and level the playing field. it's to tilt things right. >> we are going to test our tools to see what tools can the republican candidates use to make sure they get the information, negative information to democrats to the wider audience. >> america rise willing not use the tv ads. those are left with clients who could be as big as the republican national committee or small as individual races or causes. the truth is most voters prefer to get the facts before they cast the ballot. not after the elections are over. >> shannon: thank you. >>> late champ, a democrat vetoed bill to require voters to show i.d. he said it would impair the right to vote. it would cost $330,000 to provide free i.d. to those without one. they can override the veto with a simple majority vote. we look at the latest in syria with the fox all-stars when we return.

the romney/ryan campaign. there has never been a better marketing campaign than the last year of republican politics. the entire debate promess, primary process, leading up to the convention the convention itself, was actually the perfect marketing for the genuine principles and concepts of the party, and so when you hear them say, we have a messaging problem, what they mean is we made the mistake of telling the truth. >> we told you exactly what we feel, and you don't like it. >> hal: that's a big mistake in moll ticks. the document itself has all of the content of a paul ryan budget. >> to reveal health care reform? >> exactly, but keep the money. we'll be back right after this, and we'll talk about the rape trial verdict that came down over -- stew benville and the amazing concepts that went with that. we'll talk about it after the break, and it points to the very problem of reporting and prosecuting rape in this country and the public response to it when it's a certain type of defendant, and it's right in line with where women are finding themselves in the electo
, and there wasn't a lot of hispanic support the last time around -- >> not for mitt romney. jon: about 30% as compared with 70% for president obama. >> right. and jeb bush's brother, president bush, got 45% of the hispanic vote. so we have a long road to go now. the gang of eight, they want to have a vote on this bill june/july. i'm hopeful, also, the house can pass a bill so we can have comprehensive immigration reform. jon: are the two bodies likely to see eye to eye? i mean, it's one thing to get republicans and democrats together in the senate which is a more collegial body -- >> yes. jon: the house a little more fractious. >> well, senators mccain and graham went over to the house and met with some republicans, and flake said they're open. i'm not going to say exactly what they said, but the bottom line is this: if the senate can prove this is not a blanket amnesty bill, then they can bring some people from the house onboard. jon: so you're fairly confident this is going to get done. the senators say they are very close on this immigration legislation. >> i'm confident that it will g

at the ryan plan in a little more detail. it's quite similar to what he and romney proposed. how is this different? some are calling it just the same old plan. >> well, again, i'm not sure that's true. i think the majority of americans think that the budget does need to balance at some point. the federal debt is too high. although we can disagree on some details, i think overall americans can agree, we need a budget. >> here's one detail. the ryan budget is dependent on repealing obama care which is all about guaranteed not to happen. so how realistic is it, congressman, that a budget is put out there that can never actually be implemented. >> it's increasingly apparent. it's not affordable. the affordable care act is basically costing too much. premiums going up too fast and i think we should dial them back or delay implementation. >> so do you agree that obama care is not going to be repealed? your jouft looking for an amendment to that? >> well, i have to tell you there's no question that implementation is not going to occur on time. in fact, one of the career folks over at hs
to a presidential race for the countries that we are tired of this war. neither gov. romney nor president obama to their mutual credit talked about accelerating the drop down just to get the heck out. we went through all of 2012 with no major speech by the president or governor romney about how we should hurry up our departure. if you look at our history, whether it's with the middle east, korea, taiwan, we spent decades supporting young democracy that were not always doing that well anomalies that impressive. we recognized we had security interests. it took south korea for decades to get to the point of a legitimate election and we stood by them all time. if we have our security interests engaged in seat gradual progress and the partner countries, we americans are capable of doing what i consider the right thing in sticking with it. into not talk ourselves doing something for our long term interest before we even try. >> i agree with all that mike has said. the point made other post- conflict societies where we have had a long-term presence, because of the staying power, we toe these societies
